    Hidden Video and Whistleblower Reveal Gruesome Mass-Extermination Method for Iowa Pig

    Hidden Video and Whistleblower Reveal Gruesome Mass-Extermination Method for Iowa Pig

    Yet another reason to get your meat from local farmers who use ethical and sustainable farming practices. What this commercial factory farm did to its excess pigs should be illegal.

    IOWA’S LARGEST PORK PRODUCER,Iowa Select Farms, has been using a cruel and excruciating method to kill thousands of pigs that have become commercially worthless due to the coronavirus pandemic. As is true for so much of what the agricultural industry does, the company’s gruesome extermination of sentient animals that are emotionally complex and intelligent has been conducted entirely out of public view.

    But The Intercept, as the result of an investigation by animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere, or DxE, has obtained video footage of the procedure and the resulting carnage that occurred at one of the company’s facilities in mid-May. Additionally, a whistleblower employed by Iowa Select has provided extensive details to The Intercept about the extraordinary methods now being employed to kill pigs — agonizingly and over the course of many hours — in increasingly large numbers.


    What prompted both the DxE investigation and the whistleblower to come forward is Iowa Select’s recent adoption of the mass-extermination method known as “ventilation shutdown,” or VSD. Under this method, pigs at the company’s rural Grundy County facility are being “depopulated,” using the industry’s jargon, by sealing off all airways to their barns and inserting steam into them, intensifying the heat and humidity inside and leaving them to die overnight. Most pigs — though not all — die after hours of suffering from a combination of being suffocated and roasted to death. The recordings obtained by The Intercept include audio of the piercing cries of pigs as they succumb. The recordings also show that some pigs manage to survive the ordeal — but, on the morning after, Iowa Select dispatches armed workers to enter the barn to survey the mound of pig corpses for any lingering signs of life, and then use their bolt guns to extinguish any survivors.
    If animal rights activists used deadly force to stop this practice I would consider it to be just.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    I know nothing about farming, but can't they just feed the pigs for 2 months until the packaging facilities reopened?

    The ones who need killing are the politicians who shut everything down.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Pigs are smart animals. I don't like that we are so cruel as it dehumanizes us.

    Politicians have put the people who raise and slaughter pigs so we can eat them in a horrible position. Save the pigs and depopulate the politicians.

    Pigs are smarter than dogs and small children. This is so $#@!ed up that it's hard to put into words. We criticize China for what they do, but this is no better. How is this legal? This is beyond unjust and cruel. I become more and more misanthropic by the day.

    Farmers operate off credit and hope to break even or make a profit when they sell their goods. I suspect they cull their herds when they get hopelessly in the red and current prices won't change that.

    @Common: Oh man thats brutal
    This lady has a vision for the future: > https://twitter.com/RowdyGirlRanch

    At another facility, ten thousand pigs are trucked into and slaughtered at the Fearmans Pork slaughterhouse every day. A woman was killed when a truck driver carrying pigs headed for slaughter hit her (on purpose?): https://www.animaljustice.ca/media-r...3Z1atQ.twitter

    "The tragic death comes two days after the controversial agricultural gag (“ag gag”) law, Bill 156, was passed in Ontario. Bill 156 is designed to cover up animal cruelty on farms and during transport. Among other troubling provisions aimed at preventing whistleblowers and animal advocates from exposing the abuse of farmed animals, the new law aims to restrict the peaceful protest rights those who hold vigils at slaughterhouses across the province. It does so by making it an offence to “interact” with farmed animals in a transport truck—a prohibition widely denounced by animal advocates and constitutional law experts as an unconstitutional restriction of rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly guaranteed in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Today’s vigil was one of the last opportunities for a vigil before the bill becomes law."
